Praised in the New York Times for his “sensitive pianism,” Cionco has performed with numerous orchestras and in recital in nearly every major U.S. city as well as China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Canada, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Italy and Denmark. His performances of Liszt’s complete “12 Transcendental Etudes” have brought him rave reviews.

A graduate of the University of Maryland and the Juilliard School of Music, Cionco is currently professor of piano at California State University Sacramento and is frequently invited to give master classes in the United States and abroad.

For his PSC concert, “The Romantic Spirit,” Cionco performs works by Bach-Siloti, Schumann, Chopin and Mompou, among others.

Starting its fourth season, the Kamerman Piano Series was established to provide greater community access to concerts by international, critically acclaimed classical pianists.
